    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

  • 300g tub full-fat soft cheese
  • 200ml double cream

Method

  1. Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin to fine crumbs, add the melted butter and mix well. Tip the mix into a 20cm lined, loose-bottomed cake tin, smooth with the back of a spoon and put in the fridge for 30 mins.

  2. Melt 375g of the chocolate in a microwave or glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water, then allow to cool slightly.

  3. Take out 6 nice-looking strawberries and set aside. Blitz the remaining strawberries in a food processor until smooth, then add them to a bowl with the soft cheese and cream. Beat until really smooth and thick, then stir in the melted white chocolate. Pour on top of the biscuit base and smooth the top. Place in the fridge and chill overnight.

  4. Halve the reserved strawberries and place on top of the cheesecake. Melt the remaining 25g chocolate and drizzle over the top, then keep chilled until ready to serve.

I recently made ths in school with half the amount of strawberries and the same amount of raspberries, it was amazing and i had rave reviews from my family. Will definetely be making it again!

Really gorgeous cheesecake and I can't believe how easy it was. Used electric whisk to get everything smooth although didn't bother sieving the strawberries and I don't think it needed it. I used 200g of white chocolate as that was all I had - I'm glad I didn't put any more in as I think the flavour would have overpowered the lovely delicate strawberries. I did add a tbsp of icing sugar though. I left it to set overnight and the texture was perfect - set enough that it didn't fall apart when I unmoulded it but lovely, soft and indeed, mousse like! Will be making more of these to put in the freezer for later in the year.

I made a similar recipe a few times, but I lined the outer edge of the pan with parchment paper & then took a slice out of the middle of a bunch of strawberries & lined the outer edge of the tin with them (points up) before pouring in the cheese mixture & it looked amazing... you'd need extra strawberries for that though!!

Absolutely superb! Whipped ingredients separately before mixing together and sieved strawberries as recommended by other reviewers. Looked and tasted wonderful.

i followed the recipe exactly but I dont know what I did wrong since this didn't set at all! No texture and just tasted like melted strawberry ice cream :(

Have made this loads of times- with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries - no matter what the berry used it has turned out well and don't understand why some people have wanted to add gelatin. It is a firm favourite with my family and because it freezes well I have three tucked away for emegencies !!!!!!
